Overnight Fitting Service Tees Up New Clubs In Record Time

The PGA National Golf Academy at Gleneagles has partnered with Mizuno to introduce a new custom fitting facility, which will provide a free overnight turnaround service on a bespoke set of clubs.
The newly-launched Mizuno Performance Centre at Gleneagles, the only Mizuno Performance Centre in Scotland, uses the Mizuno industry-leading Swing DNA fitting system and shaft optimiser to find the perfect set of irons for each individual golfer.
With clubs being custom built and assembled just 30 miles away at the brand’s Cumbernauld facility, the team will be able to offer a free 24-hour turnaround on new sets mid-week, meaning guests can be fitted Monday-Thursday and take delivery at the hotel on the following day.
Gary Silcock, Gleneagles’ Director of Golf, said: “It’s a great service for time-poor golfers. When you order new clubs, you want to get out and use them as soon as possible, not hang around for ages waiting for them to arrive.
“At our new Mizuno Performance Centre, you can get fitted on the morning of your arrival at the hotel and then spend the day honing your game across Gleneagles’ three championship courses and enjoying the hotel’s luxury facilities.
“Meanwhile, we’ll arrange for your clubs to be made and delivered straight to your hotel room – ready for you to play with the very next day. This fantastic new service is another manifestation of our commitment to providing an outstanding golfing experience at Gleneagles.”
PGA Professional Fraser Dunlop, who manages the new Mizuno Performance Centre at Gleneagles, said: “Our guests and members can look forward to a first-class fitting experience – which mirrors the five-star service guests enjoy within the hotel and across the Gleneagles estate.”
He added: “It’s such a competitively-priced and unique offering that I can see this being a really popular birthday or Christmas present.”
Tony Scott, Marketing Operations Manager, Mizuno Golf EMEA, said: “We typically quote 5-7 days turnaround for custom-built clubs, so this is a truly unique and premium service that we can only offer at our Performance Centre at Gleneagles due its close proximity to our Assembly plant in Cumbernauld.”
Custom fitting at The Gleneagles Hotel starts from £60. The service is open to everyone; an overnight stay in the hotel is not required.
